Howard Blount blogs about his travel experiences on Backroad Planet along with his friend Jerry. Two guys from Central Florida who enjoy adventure and discovery on the backroads. They prefer taking the scenic route, finding out-of-the-way historical sites, and local flavor in hole-in-the wall cafés and guesthouses. Budget travel and economy are definite factors in trip planning, but they are not afraid to splurge occasionally. They also enjoy national and state parks and collecting passport stamps along the way.
